#10146 of 13100 Help On A 2010 CRV-EX
Sep 30, 2010 (7:30 am)
Believe it or not there is not one Hyundai Tucson GLS in the state of Florida to be had so I'm on to my second choice.
I'm going down to see Brahman Honda on Monday. Over the phone they mentioned being able to get me into a 2010 CRV-EX, 36 month lease with 15,000 miles per year at $310/month, nothing down not including tax and license.
Any advice on both what I should offer for car and if there are any better lease deals out there?
TMV has a price of $23,577 and Amex has $23,348. I think they both may be high given that the 2011s should be here soon
#10147 of 13100 could you help me what is good price for CRV EXL-awd+navi?

I tried to buy my first Honda.
They said they don't have 2011 model yet.
I liked 2010 Honda CRV EXL AWD with navigation.
I'm in SF bay area, what is good price to negociating? anyone bought recently?

Do you have a leased CRV? You might be in a good position to get out of the lease early and trade into a new vehicle. Take the extra time to compare lease buyout versus market value.
#10149 of 13100 2008 AWD vs 2WD
Oct 10, 2010 (11:26 am)
Need some advice.
I am seriously looking at two 2008 EX-L CRV's
1) 2WD; 27Kmiles for 19K
2) AWD; 23Kmiles with roof rack and fog lights for 22.5K
After seeing some of the problems on the forum with the AWD, I'm hesitant, although it is in better overall looking condition and would be nice in the rain and snow - I live in CA
Obviously the 2WD is less, but is the AWD a good addition or asking for problems?

The only reason I bought a CRV instead of a Mazda5 or other minivan type vehicle was the AWD. If you don't want AWD I think there are better choices out there.
There is always more maintenance and probability of a failure (and lower mpg) with AWD/4WD. But, if you look at the Consumer Reports reliability of CR-Vs they are pretty good.
#10151 of 13100 To buy and resell leased CR-V?
Oct 11, 2010 (7:39 pm)
So everyone tells me that the great thing about Hondas is that they retain their value. Our lease is almost up on a 2008 CR-V, and our payoff amount is $15,900. The private party resale value for this car is approximately $19,000. I don't want to keep the car, but I also don't want to lose the equity I have in it, so I'd like to buy it and resell it via Craigslist or newspaper ads. But what is the likelihood of a private party financing a vehicle for this price from a private seller? A bank's interest rates will likely be higher than the promos offered by a dealership for a new car. Doesn't it seem more likely that a person would buy a new car for a lower interest rate, for about the same monthly payment? I'd really love some feedback on this, particularly from anyone who bought and then resold their leased vehicle. Was it more trouble than it was worth?

Depending on your model and miles you may not get 19K.
I'm buying a used one and getting financing thru my Credit Union at a pretty good rate.
I've tried dealers and they are not budging much on price, so buying a new even at a goot rate, may not be that great a payment.
But, be sure on the "open market" that you can actually get 19K and don't rely on the Blue Book.

If you buy the car, then re-sell it, you'll have to pay sales tax on your purchase.. I'm pretty sure that Honda Finance won't let you sell your car directly to another private party.
Generally, the only way to realize equity out of a Honda that is near lease-end, is to trade it in to a dealer that will give you more than your payoff.. As you probably realize, trade-in value won't be much more than your payoff, cutting into your "equity".
Your questioning who would buy a three year old CR-V for $19K from a private seller is pretty much right on... That market is pretty small.

Get the AWD if you frequently head to the mountains. If not - the FWD 2008 has traction control and stability assist and handles very well in all conditions. Get rid of the factory tires and invest in better rubber (consult Tire Rack customer reviews for your vehicle) to make you even safer in rough weather.
I bought a 2007 FWD EX-L in April and live in New England and plan to purchase snows this winter - a good investment for me. We also have a Pilot for really bad storms if we are heading to the mountains. Better gas mileage with the FWD mileage than AWD due to less weight and fewer repairs/maint.
19K for an EXL with 27K sounds decent to me. My 2007 had 75K and I bargained down to 14,500 but it started at 16,700. good luck.

Where did you get that price?
